Tip is doing wonderful in his foster home.  He follows his foster mom everywhere and is very affectionate.  His allergies are under control.  Tip has been attending softball games with his foster mom, and he loves the attention from all the people.  He  is going to be a great addition to a lucky family.


Tip has recovered from his surgery and is doing great in his foster home!  We received the wonderful news that Tip's growth in his mouth was benign.  He is eating well and he has lost some needed weight.  Tip's foster mom indicates he has a great temperament.  Tip loves children of all ages and gets along well with other dogs, large and small.   


Tip just arrived at his new foster home and is settling in quickly.  He gets along great with his foster sister, a female boxer.  Tip is such a gentle boy with people and he is great with children.  He will be going to our vet soon to get a skin infection and sores on his foot checked.  Tip will also have a growth removed from his mouth.

Tip was surrendered to rescue when his owner lost her home.  He previously lived with a Pug, who was placed with a small breed rescue.  Tip is a very loving and affectionate boy.  He was raised around children (ages 2 yrs, 10 yrs, and 16 yrs).  Tip loves attention and enjoys playing.  He listens to commands, is completely housebroken, and loves to follow his people around.  If you can provide a forever home for Tip, apply today!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. 

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
